I think we'd also like to get output that is similar to what happened
with ARP-1.4.5 (i.e. before the hash table randomness change in APR-1.4.6).
I believe that was equivalent to lexical sort. The entries are hash keys,
and the hash function in APR didn't result in the kind of ordering that
svn_sort_compare_paths would choose.
